Badge - Stop Violence in the Home, 1970s-2000s Object Reg. No: HT 4681

This badge, alternatively known as a button, focuses on the issue of domestic violence, which although a very long-standing issue has been a particular concern of women's groups since the 1970s. The slogan 'Stop Violence in the Home' was used by the Body Shop in 2004 to highlight violence against women within immigrant households.
This is a circular, plastic coated, metal badge with black text on a white background and a black outer rim. The words are printed in large format in the centre of the badge (black on white). A metal pin is attached to the back.
